OPTIMIZATION


We have provided creative optimization solutions to clients in the upstream, midstream, and downstream business units.  Examples of successfully implemented studies are:

  • Exchanger addition at central process facilities to increase oil production and reduce tank emissions
  • Feed to condenser circuits heat integration in midstream operating grass roots design to save fin fan size requirements and improve operating costs
  • Pinch analysis performed on refinery unit operations to propose improved heat integration schemes
  • Overhead line sizes modified to improve condenser performance on towers, and reduce fin fan sizes for new installations (Powerpoint presentation available upon request)
  • Modifying operating pressures to realize reduced reboiler costs or achieve improved commercial advantages in refineries (Powerpoint presentation available upon request)
  • Plot plan modifications to achieve reduced piping costs on large capital projects
  • Tower optimization for feed stage, number of stages, & feed temperature vs. composition evaluating capital costs and operating costs.
